Lemon Wallhanging

I finished this up last night as I waited for my husband to come from rescuing one of his customers who had to land in a field in Tennessee because of a blocked fuel line. Ah, the life of an “aviation widow”.  The stories are a little more interesting than those of a “golf widow”, which my mom is.

Anywho, here is the finished project, which is now hanging in my dining room.  I used a whole lot of different techniques in this – embroidery, paper piecing, machine quilting, hand quilting, etc. And it’s probably the best machine binding I’ve ever done.  Apparently the trick is to go slow. Go fig – one of the things I’m no good at!

 
Yes, I did pair an inspirational quote from Dale Carnegie with a snarky one from Liz Lemon, Tina Fey’s character on 30 Rock. That’s how I roll.

Also, here is a very good recipe for Lemon Bliss Cake.

  1. Hi—Love the Lemon quilt and the way you quilted the quotes. Also thanks for the podcast…
    I might suggest that when you come to Knoxville for the AQS show that you want a location to meet for dinner that you gather in front of the status of the three suffragettes on Market Square. Easy to find–

  2. I just heard your podcast… enjoy it a lot, feels that you’re in the same room as me talking as if we’re been friends for a long time.Also very impressed at the amount of projects you get done…
